Disney animated comedy spin-off of 'Cars' (2006) following an aircraft who dreams of becoming a racer. Crop dusting plane Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) hopes to become a competitor in high-flying races but is afraid of heights. With the help of US Navy veteran Skipper (Stacy Keach), Dusty trains for the upcoming around-the-world competition and learns to overcome his fear. However, he will have to face a tough opponent in defending champion Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith) who will do anything to make sure Dusty doesn't win. The voice cast also includes Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Cedric the Entertainer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and John Cleese.

Planes didn't sound amazing when I first heard of it (everyone suggested it was merely a clone of "Cars") and they were pretty close to the mark. Problem was Cars wasn't bad, but it was far from the best Pixar had offered up animation wise (in fact most feel it's one of their weaker products esp with Toy Story standing out as one of their best)

Despite the fact Pixar is now owned by Disney, this production is made by "DisneyToon Studios" which is a different group of people.
Story wise it's very predictable (and honestly not as good as Cars) it just feels like a lower level re-run of that production. The animation is reasonably decent, though it doesn't have the polish and shine one would expect from a Pixar production. Honestly the humour and fun isn't really here either (it's not really funny, bar a few moments)

Cast wise, a bit of a mixed bag I'm not crazy about Dane Cook (Dusty Crophopper) though there are a few well known people such as Teri Hatcher (Dottie), Val Kilmer (Bravo) but Danny Mann (Sparky) is an experienced voice over actor and he's done voices for many animations. Not quite the top tier voice acting I'd have hoped for, and it's hard to attach to many of the characters in the film (not really much variation in appearance unlike Cars) The biggest issue is you've just seen it all before, and in stronger films so this will probably not go down well with adult film viewers (I got bored quite quickly)

It's an ok way to kill and hour and a half and kids aged 5-8 will probably like it. Older ones might find it a bit thin and nowhere near as funny as one would have hoped. My Son watched it and thought it was "ok" but no more than that. I'm going on his rating here hence the 3 stars. Worth a look if you are desperate for more animation films to add to your collection, but there are many more that should be far higher up your buy list.

I never feel compelled to watch all the direct to video movies from companies I like. After all, there’s usually a reason these movies didn’t hit theaters. Yes, I’ll occasionally miss a gem, but that is rare.

Which brings us to Planes. Released by Disney without Pixar’s involvement (although John Lasseter, creator of Cars was heavily involved in his role as head of Disney studios), it was originally designed to be a direct to video film in the world of Pixar’s Cars but introducing new characters. However, somewhere along the line they decided to release it to theaters first. I never quite caught it while in theaters, but I did get it on Blu-Ray. Turns out I wasn’t missing much.

Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) is a crop duster, a plane that flies back and forth in straight lines all day long. But he longs for something more – racing. As soon as he gets off work, he starts to practice with the help of his friend Chug (Brad Garrett), a truck that is reading Flying for Dummies to help Dusty out.

His ultimate dream is to fly in the Wings Around the World race, and when he surprisingly gets his chance, he’s thrilled. But can he keep up with his competition? Will his fear of heights be an issue? And what about the other planes who want to see him fail?

The animation in this movie is beautiful. It’s almost enough to make me wish I’d seen it in the theater. Over the course of the movie, we travel all around the world, and the stuff we fly by is just wonderful to look at.

Unfortunately, the story isn’t as good as the animation. It is fairly predictable. Now I don’t mind that as much, however, I never fully got involved in the story. Instead, I just sat back and waited for the next event to unfold.

For that, I blame the characters.

Planes is a mildly entertaining adventure set within the world of Cars. It is a curious venture for Pixar, firstly to make something dominantly based for the straight to DVD market and secondly to make something that doesn't carry the same humour as most of its other output or the depth in characters.
It may be because the whole concept of Cars was a difficult one to sell to adults. The characters were never as cute and cuddly as the likes of Toy Story or Bugs Life etc but the appeal to kids is plain to see. Shiny bright cars with big smily faces zooming all over the place is a captivating idea of anyone smaller than your kneecap. However it doesn't quite feel like it transfers as well to Planes.

The characters themselves are lazily drawn. They same old cliches are trotted out and this is basically a re-run of Cars' storyline just set within the world of flying rather than driving. Even the lead character Rusty sounds similar to Lightening and is certainly not as likeable. However for all the flaws this film has there are some positives which help keep this a little entertaining.

The flying sequences are superbly animated and just about thrilling enough for you to wish for more. The animation throughout is typically top notch and the running time is perfectly comfortable for the small attention spans watching.

In the great scheme of things Cars was never Pixars crowning jewel although a superior sequel went some way to address the originals flaws, so maybe Planes 2 can do the same. From an adults point of view the film felt a little cynical, but I can already hear an outcry of outrage from the under 8 community!!
